Year 859. Queen in Asturias from nine years before Ordoño I, son of Ramiro I. With these two monarchs has been definitively imposed on the throne of Oviedo the Cantabrian succession line of Fruela Pérez against the extinct lineage of the first Asturian King Don Pelayo. Ordoño I is trying to impose in the eastern part of his kingdom the same repopulation policy that he has followed in the Duero valley, after the relative depopulation of this area imposed by the brother of Fruela Pérez, Alfonso I, who reigned between the years 739 and 757.
